Review: Awaken the Highland Warrior (Connor Clan #1) by Anita Clenney

4 Stars
Awaken the Highland Warrior
Series: Connor Clan
Author: Anita Clenney
Pages: 222
Book Description from Goodreads
"Historian Bree Kirkland has always been in love with the past, but when she accidentally wakes an ancient Scottish warrior who's spent the past 150 years sleeping in her backyard, her present is suddenly fraught with danger. Faelan has awakened from the time vault ravenous--in more ways than one. He grieves for his lost family, wondering who sent the woman to wake him. If she's a demon, Faelan will have to kill her. If she's innocent, she's unleashed the gates of hell in her backyard. Either way they must rely on each other to save their future."

Awaken the Highland Warrior was nothing like I was expecting. I was expecting the time traveling thing to be more of a well I guess a big deal but really with the plot that Anita Clenney has come up with it makes it sound right at home in the novel.

We are thrown into the plot from the first page of the book, the author didn’t wait to start with it, didn’t lead up to it, it was actually kind of nice, straight to the plot no leading, I liked it. Sure we have problems and it isn’t just straight, problem then solution but it doesn’t divert around things just to draw it out like I have read in some books. Though I do think the straight to the point-ness might be something not everyone will like but to me it was a plus in the novel, making a pretty long novel a page turner that I couldn’t put down.

I really enjoyed all the characters even our main bad guy. But my favorites were of course Bree and Faelan. Bree was very tolerant of Faelan’s old school way of how women should be, slowly showing him that woman aren’t like that anymore. Faelan was of course sexy, as all get out, very protective warrior.

I love the connection he and Bree had from the very beginning. It brought of some situations that made me laugh, but at the same time you could feel the attraction and sexual tension that builds in the book. We also get the point of view from both Faelan and Bree, which was again something I loved because that gave us some of both of their pasts in certain part of the book.

I was very intrigued by the authors 'bad guys', the demons and I look forward to seeing how she will build on the world she has created after this book.

There were many, many, sexy, muscular, tall, Highland warriors in this novel. *swoon* I am looking forward to the next one to see what warrior will come next. I also wonder what evils he and our next heroine will face...

I think I would recommend this novel to anyone who is interested in a good read, also to people who might usually steer clear of time-traveling novels.
